everything you have ever wanted lyrics – hawk nelson

i walk the line
leave it all behind
i’ve been waiting forever
lets go back in time
when i could read your mind
still i’ve been waiting

it took the seasons going by
to know its not my fault

i tried to be perfect, tried to be honest
tried to be everything that you ever wanted
i tried to be stronger, tried to be smarter
tried to be everything but you

its been so long
since you’ve been home
i used to wait up forever
i used to say a prayer
wishing you were there
and i’m still waiting

you told me once
you’d show up
but i fell for that
before i fell to pieces
then i woke up
to no one,
just a picture of jesus
and a house left in pieces

it took the seasons going by
to know its not my fault

i tried to be perfect, tried to be honest
tried to be everything that you ever wanted
i tried to be stronger, tried to be smarter
tried to be everything but you

i wanted you
i need you
i want to believe you
i wanted you
i need you
i want to believe you

i tried to be perfect, tried to be honest
tried to be everything but you

i tried to be perfect, tried to be honest
tried to be everything that you ever wanted
i tried to be stronger, tried to be smarter
tried to be everything but you
